Crucial to get that first goal

15 September 2015

Craig Conway knows that if Rovers are to collect their first three points of the season on Wednesday night at Queens Park Rangers, that it is vital that the team stop conceding the first goal.

Rovers have fallen behind in all but one of their games this season, and that is something that the midfielder knows has to be stopped.

Sunday's loss at Fulham was a prime example as the display more than merited something from the game, but conceding the to two early goals proved too costly in the end.

"We can't keep losing the first goal and giving ourselves uphill tasks," said Conway.

"If we keep them out of our own goal then we have always got players who score goals.

"I can't put my finger on it, if it was that easy it wouldn't happen. So we've just got to try and start games strong defensively, and keep goals out and keep our shape as a team.

"We've just got to keep working hard and hopefully we can go and score the first goal and put the onus on the other team for a change.

"Everybody is trying to push in the right direction and I'm sure the win will come. Obviously we are aware we have not won yet and we are all desperate for a win.

"Hopefully when we get one we can put two or three together, but we just need to get that monkey off our back and get a win, that is what we want.

"It is a long, long season but you want to win as many games as you can, so hopefully that comes sooner rather than later."
